  1. Hi Chantal, ? Thank you so much for sharing these quotes! Their inspirational & uplifting? But what I think I like the most about them is how compassionate they are. I’ve suffered allot of loss since Fibromyalgia’s taken over my life. The most painful of which is the loss of family and friends.
    I wouldn’t say they (both friends & family) “dislike” me really. There’s never been any harsh or insulting words. Actually, there weren’t any words at all. Nobody took the time to ask questions like, “What is Fibromyalgia?” “How are you handling it?” Concern wasn’t even on the table.They just faded away. What I miss the most though, is compassion. I’m not pointing specifically at friends. Friends entail more than just one aspect, but they count! Ha! I’m referring to society as a whole. If you’re sick with a chronic “invisible” illness, compassion is a rare commodity. And it isn’t right.

    Every now and then I wish somebody would take a few minutes to say, “I can’t imagine what you must go thru on a daily basis.” Or, on the days when the pain’s out of control, to stay with me for a little while, because they care enough to.

    I’m just so tired of acting like I’m ok when I’m not. Acting like the pain isn’t THAT bad when it is. Or pretending I’m not thoroughly EXHAUSTED when I AM. All to save the other person in the room from feeling “uncomfortable”! Even doctors tend to steer clear of compassion.
    Compassion = Self-Pity.
    They can’t have you leaving your appointment feeling understood. You might go home and wallow in self-pity! Give me a break! The most that would happen is that I’d have a few, GUILT FREE hours! Hahaa!

    I’m saving these quotes for the days when what I need most are compassionate words! Thank you again!

    H?GS to y?u!

  2. I love these quotes and I will be downloading them . I wish I had a dime for every time I’ve heard get you and move around u might feel better. You need to have sex more often. Well if you wouldn’t stay in your room allcthe time u might feel better. I am 56 years old have had several strokes a brain aneurysm I have arthritis stomach problems constant headaches tunnel vision seizures tremors anxiety and depression. And I want to scream that maybe they should know what it’s like to be me for a change .To have your normal life as you know it come to a halt. To go from being independent to having to depend on ppl. It’s a daily struggle.

  3. The quotes have helped me to explain my feelings to my children . I have interstitual lung disease. My children( 2) are my support and I am so well loved but they want me to be more active. I am a 75-year-old.Thank you.

  4. I love these quotes! Thank you for sharing them on Pinterest but especially for emailing printable copies to people who live with Chronic Pain!! You must yourself or know someone who does. It is so good knowing that other people can relate and to not give up hope!
